Prose typeface (WIP)

  • Alister Shapley

"One-Stroke" round hand calligraphic pen style is the inspiration for this self-initiated typeface. I collect antique typographic books and take inspiration from old found objects. This typeface uses the structures seen in a traditional round hand italic calligraphy and adapts it with modern-day design structures. This is still a work in progress but I'm happy with the direction it's moving.
